Rockfax Description
One of the best pitches on the Culm Coast. A hard start through the guarding overhangs contrasts with a series of thin cracks up the centre of the face above. Start just right of two left-slanting gashes in the overhangs at the base of the face. Opposite.
Climb steeply up leftwards and make a powerful move past a small square-cut notch in the lip to a rest above. Take the thin crack above to where it divides and follow the technical right-hand branch to an easing at a shallow shattered pocket. Follow the crack above to a vegetated final few metres. © Rockfax
